    Ofcourse that excludes all Liberals.

    The E-mails was dated Sept 14.

    How many "protest" over the video actually happened by Sept 14 ??

    And how many were actual "attacks" ??

    Because the E-mail specifically refers to "attacks" in the plural, right ?

    Im just wondering if that E-mail was specifically refering to Cairo and Benghazzi ?

    Anyone have a timeline of the events and protest before and after Cairo ?

    The email doesn't mention "attacks". It says that the protests were over a video... which they were.

    Benghazi US consulate attack: Timeline



    After initially saying the attack may have been spontaneous, US authorities now say it was a pre-planned strike. Libyan authorities have said militants probably used an anti-US protest as cover for the attack, and may have had help from inside the country's security services.

    Here is the timeline of events that US officials believe led to the death of US ambassador Christopher Stevens, his state department colleague Sean Smith and former Navy Seals Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.

    10pm: Attackers open fire at the consulate, which has a main building and a smaller annex.

    10.15pm: The assailants gain entry to the complex and the main building is engulfed in flames.

    BBC News - Benghazi US consulate attack: Timeline



    It started that Night.....by early Mornin 7 Countries had risen up in protest of the US. Which the day before AQ Video was released with al Zawahri <sp> calling on those in Libya to avenge al libi.
    No the timeline of the protest that actually occured because of the video.

    The E-mail refered to "Protest" in the plural 3 days after the Benghazzi attack.

    So we can ofcourse drop Cairo and Benghazzi from the list.

    What other "protest" were there over the video 3 days after the attack ?

    and for perspective here is a time line

    11:15 a.m.: The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence,* having asked for talking points, gets a draft from the CIA’s Office of Terrorism Analysis. It starts with this line, the one that would undo Susan Rice during her run through the Sunday shows: "We believe based on currently available information that the attacks in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the U.S. consulate and subsequently its annex."

    12:23 p.m.: The CIA's office of general counsel adds a line about the "inspired by the protests" theory being inconclusive.

    3:04 p.m.: The talking points are sent to relevant White House aides, including Ben Rhodes.

    4:42 p.m.: The CIA circulates new talking points but removes a mention of al Qaida.

    6:21 p.m.: The White House (Tommy Vietor, not Ben Rhodes) ads a line about the administration warning, on September 10, of social media reports calling for demonstrations.

    7:39 p.m.: State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland objects to some of the language because "the penultimate point could be abused by members to beat the State Department for not paying attention to Agency warnings."

    8:09 p.m.: Ben Rhodes sends the "smoking gun" email, nine hours after the first draft of talking points from the CIA said that the attacks grew out of a demonstration.
    Smoking gun: Shock #Benghazi email reveals that Obama White House agreed with CIA talking points.

    and the time line is sourced here.

    Actually, it was the CIA who thought the attack was a result of the protests.


    "....Morell also detailed the sequence of events in which he learned that the CIA's initial assessment, that there had been a protest outside the U.S. installation and extremists had made an "opportunistic" attack. He said the assessment was made based on news and intelligence reports made in the days following the attack, and it was not until four days later, on September 15, that he received an email from the station chief saying there was no protest...."

    In the end, Morell said, it is still unclear if the YouTube video may have been part of the motivation behind the attack. Instead, he said analysts believe it could have been related to the video or revenge for the death of al Qaida leader Abu Yahya al-Libi.

    “We never thought that a protest and a terrorist attack were mutually exclusive," Morell said, adding, "There’s a difference between what it was, which was a terrorist attack, and what motivated it. Those are two completely different things."......

    Gen. Lowell contradicts the CIA testimony. But how would he know what the motivation for the attack was considering the guys who did the attack have never been caught? It doesn't look like Issa is too interested in catching them either....why, because they might contradict him and ruin his circus act?

    I'd suggest a google search first. Just search "protest" in the range of 09/10/2012-09/11/2012.
